On Saturday the 4th of February, Stor-Age, South Africa’s leading self-storage company gave away a brand new Golf GTI to Doug Mallet, son of former Springbok coach Nick Mallet, at the Castle Cape Town Tens event that took place over the weekend.
As a sponsor of the Castle Cape Town Tens, Stor-Age ran the competition throughout the weekend, and in a lucky draw saw Mallet and five other contestants put their skills to the test on the field. An elimination round saw three contestants drop out while Mallet became one of two contestants in the running to win the GTI. In order to win, contenders had to hit the crossbar of the goal posts with a rugby ball.
Each contender was allocated one shot only from the ten metre line. To the crowds disbelief, Ikey Tigers player Mallet hit the target and walked away with the Golf, valued at R365 000.
Elated by the win Mallet commented that it was “Completely ridiculous. Stupidly lucky!”.
“We are thrilled that Mallet won the car and think it was an outstanding ending to an already successful rugby festival” said Gavin Lucas, CEO of Stor-Age.
